Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind - Senior Peer Support Worker

About the role

Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind is a highly regarded local charity, helping people to be mentally healthy and working together with those experiencing mental health problems and dementia to improve their quality of life. With an annual turnover of £5M, over 150 staff and 200 volunteers, we are one of the largest charities in the Mind network

The opportunity to change minds. The power to change lives.

Our new Hospital to Home Service works closely with Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to support hospital discharges and enable patients to feel settled and supported in their community.
This is an incredibly rewarding role where you will have the opportunity to improve the lives of your clients, to give them hope and direction. You will support their recovery journey by enabling them to settle more quickly into their homes and communities.

This is a challenging role, so you’ll need to be organised, resilient, empathetic, adaptable and dedicated to supporting the adjustment from hospital to home in a smooth transition. As a people person, you’ll build good rapport with your clients, gaining a real understanding of their key needs and their aspirations, and support them to achieve their goals.

If you’re looking for a career where you can make a positive difference to the lives of people needing mental health support and create a fairer, more inclusive society in a role where no two days are the same, apply today.  We recognise the importance of having a diverse and inclusive work force, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:

  • People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds
  • Young people
  • Disabled people
  • People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities

BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people.  BLG Mind always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.

Staff benefits include a matched contribution pension scheme, 25 days' holiday (pro-rata, rising with service), quality supervision and training opportunities. See our website for more reasons to work for Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind.  Successful applicants will be expected to undergo an Enhanced level Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
